Scarce cardboard advertising display issued by Pickering's Furniture of Pittsburgh, featuring a striking image of Honus Wagner with bat in hand and the title "Worlds Greatest Player" printed across the top. Below the image is Wagner's complete statistics for the 1906 season. Measuring an impressive 7 x 9.25 inches, this is one of the few advertising displays that pays tribute to the great Honus Wagner. Graded FAIR 1.5 by BGS (Beckett), the offered example displays heavy creasing, moderate soiling front and back, and the number "52577" noted in pencil on the reverse. This is the first example of this advertisement we have ever seen and one that would be a welcome addition to any advanced baseball advertising or Honus Wagner collection. Reserve $300.
